When wanting to know the importance of Instructional Design, the first step is to define this ever-evolving realm of learning processes. Instructional Design is defined as the systematic development of instructional specifications using learning and instructional theory to ensure the quality of instruction. Some of this includes
- Developing strategies that will improve learning pedagogy for both the online and face-to-face classrooms
- Improving course design for an integrated series of teaching-learning experiences that will lead students to the specified learning objectives
- Help students easily identify course expectations, learning objectives and outcomes needed to be successful in the course of their selection
